Jeopardy! Will Tape Three Specials in DC in April

Trivia junkies, take note: Jeopardy! will be taping in DC at DAR Constitution Hall from April 9 to 13. Throughout that time, Alex Trebek and company, who are making the trek to Washington in honor of election season, will shoot three specials: “Power Players Week,” the “Teachers Tournament” finals and semifinals, and the “Teen Tournament.”

The show—which hasn’t filmed in DC since 2012—isn’t accepting entrants for these specials, but the planned matchups sound exciting. “Power Players Week” (taping April 9 and airing May 16-20) pits influential people—specifically newsmakers, political figures, and journalists—against each other for charity, while the “Teachers Tournament” (taping April 10 and airing May 2-13) and “Teen Tournament” (taping April 12 and 13 and airing TBD) will feature the smartest instructors and high school students.

Tickets for all the specials are free, but there’s a major caveat: They’re first available at 6 AM on Monday. You know what to set as your alarm clock song, right?
